    TF2Maps.net Mega-mini-hauntacular Killcam contest!
    October 29th to November 11th (7pm EST)

    'Tis the Halloween season. A time of Ghouls, Ghost and Gastro problems because of all the sugar you had! *A doctor shrieks in the distance* But, things get really scarier today! TF2Maps.net is having an photography contest! *Glass breaks* Put down the camera Shutterbug, it's not that type of contest. To keep with the theme of All Hallows Eve, you're to photograph your DOOOOOOM! *A flash of light and thunder cracks in the distance*

    Yes, your DOOOOOOOM! As in, your best Kill-cam shot! Find yourself shooting baddies with magical bolts in Helltower, but all the sudden get turned into a chicken and launched into the stratosphere? And the last thing you see is that crazy Demoman laughing at you, right before he gets turned into a chicken and launched into the stratosphere? Screenshot it, Caption it and Submit it to the Image Upload thread! This isn't Instagram though, so everyone is limited to just TWO screenshots with accompanying captions.

    RULES OF SUBMISSION
    • Limit of 2 Images per person.
    • Caption must be no longer than 4 sentences per image.
    • The image you take MUST be ingame on an OFFICIAL Halloween Map. This includes and is limited to Harvest_event, Mann Manor, Ghost Fort (Lakeside_event), Eyeduct, Coaltown_event and Helltower.
    • You CAN NOT modify your image in photoshop or any other image editing software.
    • You CAN NOT replicate a killcam in Source Film Maker, or use Source Film Maker to make any other modifications
    • You MUST have HUD disabled when the image is taken (See Multiplayer > Advanced Options for the "Hide HUD during Freezecam screenshtos)
    • You MUST submit a .jpg image (this is naturally done with TF2, again, see advanced options)
    • To be considered for entry into the voting phase, you must submit your images and captions to the upload thread!
    • You MUST Submit your images in the following format

    If anyone is found to be breaking any of these rules, you will be subject for disqualification from this contest.

    Suggestions:
    • If you happen to have 2 kill cams that you can write a story about it, do it (just, don't go over the sentence limit.)
    • The caption is part of the contest! So, make it funny and tie in with the image!
    • It's a Halloween Screenshot contest, so you really want to focus on that.
    • To access your screenshot naviagate to the tf/screenshots folder.

    VOTING
    On November 11th at 7PM EST (Eastern Standard Time), the Upload thread will be closed and submissions will no longer be taken. Sometime following that closure, a voting thread will be opened. It will be a standard voting thread with a poll (depending on how many submissions are entered). The number of votes you are allowed to cast is also dependent on the number of submissions. If there are a lot and a standard in-thread poll cannot hold all entries, I will make a voting where you will submit your votes as posts. If there is enough to be in a poll, I will use that. Voting will run for 1 week. The person who has the highest amounts of votes at the end of the voting period will be the winner. There will only be 1 winner. In the case of a tie, depending on the number of people in said tie, I will decide the appropriate action as to determine who is is the winner.

    PRIZES!
    What does the person with the most votes win? A game from my steam inventory.

    Any questions? Post here or PM me on the forums.

    For all those Photographers out there: All images that are submitted for this contest will remain the ownership of their submitters, but by posting your image in the Upload thread, you allow me to freely post the images in the voting thread and results thread that will be posted on this website. If you do not want your image shared with the internet, please say so. It seems kind of silly though, don't you think?

    I reserve the right to modify these rules at any time if I feel (this is including, but not limited to) that the rules are being abused to gain an advantage over other players, that they are too restrictive, or they are not restrictive enough.

    This is an awesome idea, definitely going to be submitting to this.
    But quick question, if I post 2 screenshots, and then find an awesome screenshot later. Can I resubmit submissions (removing old and adding new) until the voting begins?

    Due to recent changes in how humble bundle distributes their games, anything listed as a humble bundle key on the list of games is currently unavailable to acquire until I find out of this is a retroactive change.

    Update! It appears that this change is not retroactive, but will be in place moving forward. There is some parts of the Terms of Service though that might make this type of thing, that is me handing out games as prizes, against the terms of service and could get me in trouble moving forward. I may contact the humble bundle guys for clarification, and see if this is okay.

    Do I really need to have the HUD turned off for it to count?

    Yes, HUD will disqualify you.

    Welp, I'm out then. I'm not going to decrease the enjoyment of my game for a little contest. I prefer to see who kills me by name and have it in the shot for screenshots used outside of this. I had a screenshot I was thinking of submitting but I didn't read close enough to that part.

    How will you be able to confirm that it is a kill cam shot and not just a well framed shot from the replay editor or something?

    Since I've had a couple people mention this now.

    You can set it so that the kilcam (freezecam) screenshots have hud hidden.

    Head to Options > Multiplayer > advanced and check the "Hide HUD on freezecam shots" box.
